No longer must you be content to merely watch and be mystified by TV mentalists. Embarrassing, isn't it, to have your friends recall the miracles of a TV mentalist and ask YOU how they were accomplished--when you might be a successful TV mentalist yourself! You, too, can bask in the limelight and glory of television.

All phases of successful operation are covered in detail in this volume, written by mentalists with many years of actual experience. Actual program methods and routines, including the sensational and baffling "Brain Busters" are explained.

Practically all of the material and "Brain Busters" are not just for TV--they can be performed with equal effectiveness for live audiences, whether it be for stage, club or small groups.

"TV Mentalism appears to contain a wealth of data that would be of tremendous value to an aspiring TV Mentalist. Further, even if you do not wish to enter the field seriously, you'll enjoy reading how many of the impossible-looking effects are accomplished."
